An Irish Blessing

Happy First Day of Spring & TGIF!

Are you sick of seeing my St. Patty's Day cards yet? I promise, just a couple more to share with you today & tomorrow and I'll more on to another theme for Sunday. Last night Kimmy and I got together for a stamping play date & I completed 5 of the 12 cards I have sketched out in my notebook. I'm happy with that progress! I have 7 more sketches to bring to life, and I hope to get them completed over the weekend. So, I can assure you that I'll have a variety of themes to share next week. Remember those Cutie Pie Kids? I'm still working on those too!

Thanks for all of your sweet comments this week as I overload you with St. Patrick's Day cards. I hope you're enjoying them!

As I'm sure you all remember, earlier this week Kimmy announced that this weeks FFF challenge was to make a St. Patrick's Day card as well. So, here's an Irish Blessing for you!

All of the stamped components on this card are by DRS Designs and were stamped in shades of green ink. There are 4 separate images used on this card--Petals on a Shamrock Sentiment, the Four Leaf Clover, and Lines O Plenty Background stamp, and the Giga Shamrock Blessings Oval. (You can use your Marvy Uchida Giga Oval to punch it out!)

Stamps: DRS Designs- Giga Shamrock Blessings Oval, Petals of a Shamrock Greeting, Lines 'O Plenty Background, Four Leaf Clover
Ink: SU! Handsome Hunter, Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Lime Pastel
Paper: Smooth white cardstock by Office Depot, Colored Cardstock by The Paper Company, American Crafts
Accessories: Brads by Making Memories, Ribbon By Michael's Go With The Grain, Nesties
Finished Card Size: 4 3/8" x 5"

I also played with this weeks SCS Sketch Challenge yesterday. I've posted it on the DRS Designs Blog today. You can run over and see it here.

Don't forget to check out Kimmy's St. Patty's Day card and leave a comment to enter her Blog Candy giveaway.

May we all be blessed by this Irish blessing for good health, good luck, and happiness today & every day!

Have a wonderful Spring weekend!

Thanks for visiting today!
